The album also falls right in the middle of a fascinating period for Dylan. Well, my favourite period of, erm, Dylanology , is the stretch between ; the post- Blonde On Blonde albums and pre-Blood On The Tracks ones that start with John Wesley Harding an alt-country template arriving 30 years early and concludes with the superb Planet Waves.
And the locusts sang such a sweet melody. In a interview with the Aspen Institute, Crosby revealed the line "The man next to me, his head was exploding" was in reference to his presence during the events.
It is often assumed that Dylan wrote "Went to See the Gypsy" after meeting Elvis Presley ,  as the song mentions visiting with a mysterious and important man in a hotel. The song also contains the line, "A pretty dancing girl was there, and she began to shout The meeting described in the song may have been purely imaginary, however, as Dylan clarified in a interview with Rolling Stone ' s Douglas Brinkley: "I never met Elvis, because I didn't want to meet Elvis I know The Beatles went to see him, and he just played with their heads.
Two or three times we were up in Hollywood, and he had sent some of the Memphis Mafia down to where we were to bring us up to see Elvis. But none of us went I don't know if I would have wanted to see Elvis like that. I wanted to see the powerful mystical Elvis that had crash-landed from a burning star onto American soil.

Dylan would gain complete control over his personal management and his own music publishing. Another tense contract negotiation awaited in , this time with CBS.
